They might have been doing netflix through a different method. Currently Netflix doesn't allow cable companies access to their content.
"Getting a DVR from your cable company? Then don’t expect Netflix to run on it, even if it’s capable of doing so. TiVo boxes supplied by cable TV provider Suddenlink are stripped of their Netflix functionality, Light Reading reported this week.
However, the culprit isn’t the cable company, for once. Suddenlink says it would love to rent out TiVo DVRs with Netflix to its customers, but Netflix’s contracts with the studios don’t allow it to do so. Netflix has since confirmed the story, saying its licensing agreements don’t extend to devices supplied by pay TV providers."
I get netflix streaming to my TV's through the use of my PS3 and Wii, they also can put it through the newer Blu-Ray players and Roku Players available at retailers.

You can't. Until Netflix is able to secure rights with the studios to allow TV Providers to put Netflix on their set top boxes, you will have to use a PC, a game console, a tablet/mobile device or a TV with Internet capabilities.to view Netflix on a TV. Hopefully that changes soon...

Netflix is available on many TVs and Blu-Ray players. (As are Vudu, Blockbuster, Amazon, CinemaNow, etc.). Yoyu mentioned you have a Wi-Fi TV. First, make sure Netflix is even offered (you can look under the Apps section). Not all devices offer the same apps, although Netflix does appear to be on most. I have it on both my Samsung BD player and my LG TV. Then you will have to look in the SETTINGS section to set-up. There are options, for WIRED, WIRELESS, etc.) If you are using Wireless, you will probably have to enter a security code (usually found on a label on your router, along with Serial number, etc.) Hope this helps.
By the way, if you want 5.1 audio from Netflix, you might have to connect an optical cable from the device to your A/V receiver.
